I had 4 wisdom teeth removed in my teens.
After many years and fillings, I moved into retirement with all of the remaining teeth that our good lord gave us.Yesterday I lost a second molar because it was abscessed and there was significant bone loss. The only pain was a dental bill. Now I am trying to decide if I want an implant.

I have lost a few molars but, still have enough to chew and, still have all my front teeth which is unusual for rednecks like me. As far as getting a partial, its only a dream.

Missing only the bottom, left, next-to-last molar. Some fillings. A testament to brushing, floss and cleaning every six months:-)

Three wisdom teeth pulled (not sure which one is still there). A number of crowns though.

All considered, not bad. My father and I were the only ones that had teeth. All the rest (mom and ancestors) had dentures as far back as I can remember.

Have almost all my teeth. Minus 3 out of 4 wisdom teeth. One was determined not to be a problem and it still isn't.

However I had to had to have one of my 4 lower incisors removed due to it being chipped pretty badly when I was about 13. Had to also wear braces to close up an overbite and this was supposedly to make my smile normal.

Hell, in retrospect this might have been unnecessary. Could have had a cap or something. Doesn't prevent me from chewing normally though.

The oral surgeon asked if I wanted to pull it out myself, and I did. He grabbed the tooth with his pliers and had me push and pull until I got it free. Damn thing had a root over 1" long!

Bled like a stuck pig all the way home. Spitting blood and gagging! Good thing he administered a lot of Novocaine!

They're all there, but one or two are crumbling now. No pain, but I need to have it taken care of soon. I always get ookie at the prospect of dental work. Embarassed

One of the wonderful side effects of Diabetes is dental problems so after going 10 years with undiagnosed type ll diabetes I finally had to get full dentures. Had 'em for almost 30 years now. Changes the type of material and shape and size of bit you prefer in your pipes as well as the size! Other than that, My toothes sure are purty!! Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil

I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled back in the day. Another tooth cracked and could not be saved so I have a bridge crown there.

Nope! I have severe autoimmune arthritis and spent 10 years on high doses of steroids. They leached so much calcium out of my teeth that they would snap off at the gum line or shatter if I bit down too hard. Still have 19 of them though so only need partals. Of course they never fit right so I never wear them anyway. I think they're in a drawer somewhere.

Rande funny you mention having pulled one of your own. I had to pull a premolar on my own out in the boonies camping. Sucked like hell!

What an interesting question. Aside from 2 teeth I sacrificed as part of orthodontics treatment many years ago, i have lost 2 wisdom teeth and one molar.

Dentists are up there with mechanics on my 'don't trust' list, and for much the same reason: you never really know whether the work is needed or not. Most of my tooth problems in later years have resulted from aggressive dentistry in my youth. Specifically, the loss of fillings or the expansion of decay around them.

Are dentures inevitable beyond the 60s?

The only problem with bone loss as an issue, if you plan to get implants make sure you are not suffering from bone loss disease.  The bone loss that I have make implants impractical since the posts would loosen in time....waste of money at that point.

I'm a freak of nature. Born without either lateral incisor (so I look a bit vampirish) but with two extra wisdom teeth. I have a big mouth, so everything fits in there without a problem. So far so good, clean bill of dental health.

Yes, I have them all. The ones not in my mouth are kept in an old cigar box.

I had my wisdom teeth removed at 19yrs old, and otherwise I'm good. I may have some issues later if I'm like my materal grandmother's side, but the other three sides of the family are fine.

Teeth! Why did you have to mention teeth  Crying or Very sad 
Historically had two wisdoms removed 'cause I only had two and they were canting my jaw. Had another extracted years ago 'cause it died under a gold crown and then got infected, and the bloody dentist kept the gold  Evil or Very Mad 
Now we come to recent - on the way to the airport to fly to the USA half of a tooth fell out! No problem, no blood, no pain. Got back home, dentist filled the gap without checking the half that was left - next day, face like a balloon and an emergency extraction and antibiotics Evil or Very Mad 
Couple weeks later bloody great piece of filling fell out of another tooth, it's dead, split in two, and needs to come out but dentist won't do it 'cause I got a DVT when I flew back from the states and am now taking Rat Poison (warfarin) so have to live with it while I sit on a waiting list to have it taken out at the hospital  Twisted Evil

From my experience, no. Depends on your own situation.

I've known several folks that had dental problems for years, not necessarily due to poor hygiene. They had to have all their remaining teeth yanked and now have full denture sets. One guy was in his early 20's and inherited his Dad's gum issues.

Four wisdom teeth were removed when I had facial reconstruction surgery. I also lost seven teeth, hence the facial reconstruction. I now have an upper bridge implanted to cover the seven that were knocked out. Multiple fillings on the back four teeth (Two upper, two lower) and the rest are ok....for now. Rolling Eyes

Got jumped in a nightclub by four subhumans. I was knocked cold before I hit the ground. Once I hit the ground, the four of them proceeded to tap dance on my face with steel toed boots. I didn't see it coming, I was hit in the back of my head. If I did see it coming, the story would have ended with help from my friend, "Pietro Beretta".........

That blows that you didn't even get a chance to defend yourself. Glad you made it out of that alive.
